The Parks and Recreation Master Plan calls for many improvements at the City Dam. When completed, our park will be a first-class recreational area. Several of the items have been completed and more will be done in the coming months. So far, the parking lot has been expanded, paved, and stripped. 100 East has been widened. The batting cages have been relocated to the east of the ball field. The Children’s Park has been created with new playground equipment and a pavilion for picnics. Also several trees have been planted and many benches installed.

Recently the installation of a sprinkler system and hydro-seeding of the area surrounding the new playground was completed. Later this fall completion of a paved walking trail around the Wellsville Dam will be done.

Funding for the improvements to the park have come from park impact fees, Cache County RAPZ tax awards, and individual donations. No City property tax monies have been used for these improvements.

The Parks and Recreation Committee led an effort to raise funds for the purchase of the new trees and benches. The following is a list of those who responded to the call. The City is very grateful to these individuals and families for their support. The entire community will benefit from your generosity.
